ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — The man accused of a quadruple homicide in St. Charles is about to stand trial — and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

It was December 28, 2018 when Richard Emery's girlfriend, Kate Kaston, was shot to death along with her two children — ages 8 and 10 — and Katson's mother. It happened at a home on Whetstone in St. Charles.

Jury selection began two weeks ago, and the trial is now ready to begin. KMOX will have updates on this story as they come.
